Mathematics Courses

 

MAX1155     ALGEBRA 1     REQUIRED     YEAR

Content includes data analysis, linear functions, linear equations and inequalities, systems of equations in two variables, matrices, nonlinear functions, exponents, products and factors of polynomials, quadratic equations, the real number system, and radical expressions. 

 

MAX1200     ALGEBRA 2     YEAR

The Algebra 2A course extends the algebraic skills and knowledge developed in Algebra 1B by exploring the real number system in greater depth, providing exposure to various algebraic techniques, and developing the concept of function, including graphing techniques, inverse functions, quadratic relations and systems, polynomial equations, exponents and logarithms, sequences and series, matrices and determinants, and permutation and combinations.

 

MAX1310 / MCX1010     ALGEBRA 3 / TRIGONOMETRY     YEAR PAIR

This course is designed to provide opportunities for students to strengthen algebraic concepts and skills. Content includes are linear and polynomial equations, sequences and series, matrices and determinants, and real and complex numbers.

 

MCX1020 / MCX1030     PRECALCULUS / ANALYTIC GEOMETRY     YEAR PAIR

This course pair extends the study of elementary functions and is designed for students who are preparing to study calculus.

 

MGX1150     GEOMETRY     REQUIRED     YEAR

The emphasis of this course is on understanding and use of relationships among points, lines, and figures. These include properties of various figures, relations among lines such as parallelism, intersections, concurrency and perpendicularity, and relations among figures such as congruence, similarity, symmetry, rigid motions, right triangle relationships, trigonometric relationships, circle relationships, constructions, three-dimensional figures, coordinate geometry, and transformations.

 

MXX1100 / MXX1300     PROBABILITY / STATISTICS     YEAR PAIR

These courses focus on the probability and statistics content standards with emphasis on developing probability concepts inherent in everyday situations experienced in investment, insurance, science, business, and technology, and an introduction to statistical issues and concerns and presents strategies for analyzing and interpreting data. Emphasis is also placed on using probabilities in decision making. The courses include the following topics:  graphs and charts, collection and organization of data, measures of central tendency and dispersion, uses and misuses of statistics, frequency distributions, correlation, and regression. Laboratory experiences are provided.
